Party responsible for the careers of Rihanna, Willow Smith and Kanye West, Rap Svengali Jay Z has proven that he most certainly knows what he is doing when it comes to recruiting new performers.
Now, in what will be sure to excite fans of the X Factor franchise, he has reportedly signed one of the show’s contestants in a bid to expand his already successful label- Roc Nation.
Find out who below…
According to TheBlackMedia.Net, the Rapper has signed with the label just days after being voted off the X Factor USA this past weekend.
If this report turns out to be true, it will mark the second time the ‘99 Problems‘ mogul has taken on a former talent show competitor, signing America’s Got Talent hopeful Alexis Jordan back in 2008.
Most likely orchestrated by mutual friend LA Reid, who of course served as Astro’s mentor during his time on the show, we can’t think of any other label with the means and know how to turn him into the cash cow Reid clearly believes he can be.
